I'd blame this first incident on my own stupidity, but being that it was Friday the 13th, I think I'll blame the day. Makes me feel better that way. I was driving along, rockin' out to the radio, on my lunch break, and was trying to get to this little hole-in-the-wall sushi restaurant to pick up my food. I work in an area that is under some pretty major construction. Anyway, I was TRYING to follow the instructions of the half-witted, disinterested flag girl, honest I was, but somehow, instead of remaining behind the car in front of me, I ended up smack dab in the middle of all the big constuction machine thingies. Driving on the ripped up section of road, with sunburned men in hard hats looking at me like the dumbass I was. Oops. I was embarassed until I remembered
Then I missed my ferry.
THEN when I got to the ferry terminal for a later boat, I remembered they didn't take debit, and I had to drive all the way to the little marketplace which is like an island of it's own in the midst of a sea of cars. After that, I had to go allll the way back to the ticket vestibule driving AGAINST traffic the whole way. Because of this, I almost missed THAT boat too.
I got on the boat, and as any parent travelling with small children, we went to the bathroom. Where I left my purse. My wallet, cash, phone, all our ID, my camera, EVERYTHING. My whole world is in my bag. And I didn't even realize it. Luckily, I got paged to the giftshop (while I was IN the giftshop) because some lovely human being had returned it, completely intact. Whoever you are, you rule.
Then they lost power at the ferry terminal (island side) so we were all stuck on that damn boat, in our car, for an extra hour +.
Next Friday the 13th, I'm staying in bed.
What's your worst story about this day?
